Active since 2011, the local chapter of the contagious event format PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) hits a big benchmark on Tuesday with its 20th installment. Emceed by Emmy-winning news anchor Randy Beamer and presented in collaboration with the nonprofit SA2020 (an initiative aimed at establishing San Antonio as a world-class city by 2020), volume 20 unites eight “engaged community members who drive change and action in our city.” Besides short, snappy PowerPoint presentations by Mayor Ivy Taylor, chef Steve McHugh, San Antonio Poet Laureate Laurie Ann Guerrero, Tech Bloc co-creator David Heard, food entrepreneur Jody Newman, Promise Neighborhood director Tony Leverett, ambitious eighth grader Kylie Helterbrand (class of 2020) and SA’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, Douglas Melnick, the evening comes complete with a pre-show happy hour (enforced with a cash bar and light bites from Alchemy, Bakery Lorraine and Folc, among others), a silkscreen station courtesy of Cruz Ortiz and Snake Hawk Press, and an after party at The Last Word (229 E. Houston St). $5 donation, 7:30pm, Tue., The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., pechakucha.org/cities/san-antonio
